500 errors during crawl

Does anyone have any info on what happens if your server throws up a 500
error whilst being crawled by the big guys? Are there penalties if a SE
encounters . . lots?

My best guess, assuming you have inbound links: nothing. You might get
crawled slower and slower, but real penalties (like a ban), I doubt it.

I assume that the 500 was temporary.
